National Walking Month

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Let's face it. The majority of us do not walk because we do not know what to wear when walking.  Well I am here to help you.

The weather plays a major role in walking. Don't you agree?  Wind, rain, snow, and sun can all affect your walking experience. But you have to be faithful to exercise and not to let that derail your commitment to a regular walking schedule. Make sure that you have what you need to keep you "moving/walking" all year long.
